the plo, of course the plo is about to declare a state at the u.n. later this month they are asking for an upgrade of their mission there, and so hamas may be trying to steal the thunder of their rival the plo. but, you know, one knows for sure that they cannot destroy israel, they can't defeat israel here. what they are inviting is potentially a ground operation which would devastate the gaza strip. jenna: so much we want to talk about, jonathan, we never have enough time. we look forward to having you back as always. thank you so much. >> my pleasure. jon: right now both republicans and democrats saying they are on the same page, that they can reach a deal to avoid sending the country over the so-called fiscal cliff. but it appears the stickyist of sticking points, raising taxes on the wealthy is still standing in the way of any compromise. >> we are still at the place where everything gets hung up, no increases in tax rates, that is still the position of house republicans, correct? >> well, again, we'd be happy to look at that if it solved the problem. the problem is it doesn't s
cease-fire to gaza. and the u.n. security council meeting that is underway focusing on the issue between israel and hamas. dennis: wal-mart shares up a moment ago. after moving up the date of fourth-quarter dividend payment, you can see that up to half a percent, avoid potential tax rate changes on january 1. rising as much as 39.6%. our next guest says the example of how the fear of the cliff can be worth a market than the cliff itself. john brown joins us now, thank you for being with us, john. what about the fiscal cliff phobia versus the impact of the fiscal cliff? the cuts less than half a billion, $3.5 trillion budget. >> yes, you're quite right. fear of the unknown is worse than facing something that you know. it is a sad thing our political overlords have ensured the only certainty that we face is uncertainty. it will kill human endeavor in the encouragement of more cattle these, investment it makes people risk diverse and they hold cash and in business it makes people risk reverse and therefore they do not invest, and that is what a lot of the money from qed, going into bank dep
to al-qaeda in that u.n. speech to the world was that al-qaeda had been weakened and osama bin laden was dead. so i think this raises additional questions. it goes beyond ambassador rice. first of all, why were the talking points changed? it doesn't make any sense to me that we were trying to dupe al-qaeda that. doesn't pass the laugh test. buff also why was the president out 14 days later and still fail to go call it a terrorist attack to the world? >> steve: absolutely. because we don't know a lot of what is told by the intelligence community to the president of the united states, but we understand that 72 hours after the attack the presidential daily briefing, which tells the president about all the stuff that's going on, and it's classified, said just that. it wasn't spontaneous, and that it apparently had ties to that al-qaeda affiliate. so the president knew, even though he was out saying something else. >> i think it's deeply troubling, we got to get to the bottom of it. we have to assume he's receiving the classified information and we have no know why were the talking points
the prime ministers of basically from israel, egypt, the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon. french foreign minister qatari prime minister, foreign minister, and the turkish foreign minister. you can see what they're doing is tapping the countries that have the most influence. number one would have to be egypt. very, very important. also turkey. you can see the delicate balancing act by the president and secretary clinton is saying the same thing. on the one hand israel has the right to defend itself against these rocket attacks from gaza, but it also has to try to keep this to a minimum and try to bring this as they keep saying de-escalate the situation. suzanne. >> jill, senator john mccain had a very interesting suggestion about who he thought should get involved. what do we make of one of the people that he would like to put out there? >> well, let's listen to what senator mccain said. it's an interesting proposal. >> tried to find someone even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton, to go and be the negotiator. i know he would hate me for saying that, but we need a
officials, however important to note that the u.n. secretary-general is coming here tomorrow and a delegation of arab league foreign ministers is going to where you are in gaza. potentially this diplomacy might continue to play out over next 24 hours. i'm told by an israeli government official that they hope that the diplomatic tribe will prove successful. they're continuing with the military preparations as well. they call it the trigger is called -- they're ready to pull it if the diplomacy doesn't work and this evening, in fact, one official said that perhaps they might have to show the sword more clearly in order to energize the diplomacy. so you can see there is a lot of impetus happening, people want the diplomacy to work, we are just not sure whether it is even though we hear from the palestinian side that they are working very seriously and they are really wanting to have a cease-fire and egyptians are doing that work. anderson? >> christiane, is it clear at all at this point, and it may not be, what the parameters of any kind of cease-fire would be? >> well from the
